VIDEO: Liverpool bound Aspas helps Celta Vigo avoid relegation

Iago Aspas Celta Vigo

Liverpool’s imminent new signing Iago Aspas played a crucial role in helping Celta Vigo avoid relegation over the weekend.

The striker has been the stand out performer for his club and if he’s moving on, he’s played superbly right up to the very end of his Celta Vigo career.

Aspas produced a stunning piece of skill to set up a goal for Insa which secured a 1-0 win over Espanyol and meant Celta Vigo avoided the drop down to the second flight of Spanish football.

That is going to make him more expensive to Liverpool because it won’t reduce the size of his ten million Euro buy out clause but that won’t matter one bit to the Anfield side when reflecting on the skill and potential he seems to have in spades.

Brendan Rodgers has set his side up brilliantly to be able to control the ball well, retain possession and work it through the opponent’s final third at great pace.

Based on this Aspas will fit right in because it’s one of many examples, which shows just how skilful he can be inside the opponent’s final third, under the most extreme pressure when the stakes just don’t get any higher.
